Interested in helping out with The Goodtimes Project, but not sure how you can contribute? There are multiple ways to donate your time and skills that will positively impact our ability to serve local children and families. Opportunities change with our calendar so check back often.
Fundraising and Events
Goodtimes Gala committee
Seeking people who love The Goodtimes Project and enjoy event planning, logistics, and procurement (asking people for donations). Work with a fun group of people to put on an amazing event that is the largest camp fundraiser of the year! Commitment requirements are to attend monthly committee meetings and to see your assignments through between September–April.
Contact organizational lead Bridget firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to committee help, we're always on the lookout for individuals to help on single or multiple day occasions, such as pickup or delivery of items, setup or tear down, or working the day of an event.
Opportunities arise as events are scheduled on our calendar, but here is a sampling of volunteer help we've needed in the past:
Wine pick up from vintners
Moving items from the office to the event venue
Helping onsite with silent auction
We currently need help the week of April 8-13 for 2019 Goodtimes Gala prep!
Camp Visitors and Volunteers
Full-Time Camp Staff
Looking to give and get the most from your time? We need caring and responsible adults (must be 18 years or older) to volunteer between 1-9 days of their time to be on staff at our week-long, one day, and weekend camps. There's so much to know we built a whole page about it.
In addition to our full-time camp staff, we rely on other individuals to give from a couple of hours to a full day of their time to make our camps run. These day-of volunteers supplement our staff by providing extra hands to make programming, activities, and transportation possible. With each year comes a new timeline and new requests, but samples of ways we could use your help include:
Activity or Arts & Crafts helpers
Alaska camper airport pickup/return
Camper check-in and check-out
Camp setup and teardown
Contact the Camp Director, Tanya, at email@example.com.
Groups or individuals
Whether you're part of a group (company, organization, or institution) that wants to collectively donate your time or you're an individual who wants to volunteer on your own, we'd love to see how we can connect.
Please note that our top priority is ensuring a positive and safe camp experience for our campers and that may mean limiting the number of visitors/volunteers that we invite to join us at camp. That also means that we have a few rules, including:
All volunteers must be at least 18
For health reasons, all visitors must be immunized/vaccinated and no children under the age of 12 months can be brought to camp for any duration of the visit
All visitors and volunteers need to be approved and expected by the camp director
